Gateshead, Tyne and Wear-3rd & 4th of April 2011

Location of Sighting: Gateshead, Northeast UK.
Date of Sighting: 3r d& 4th of April 2011
Time: 11PM & 10:05PM
Witness Name: Andy

Witness Statement: On the 3rd of April 2011 i was taking out some rubbish to the bin outside. I looked up into the sky and for no more than 2 seconds a huge white light appeared and 1 second later it faded and vanished. There was nothing there before hand as the sky was clear and the light seemed to just appear then vanish.

Then on the 4th of April at 10PM i was again out in the yard with a friend who smokes, and we both look up and see a huge white light zip across the sky then vanish. This lasted no longer then10 seconds, but it seemed to fly like a fire rocker firework, not in a straight line but ever so slightly ‘zig zagging’ then it faded out into nothing. I have an interest in the topic of UFO’s but have never seen anything that i couldnt explain before. And the fact that this has now happened two nights in a row is even stranger. I feel like no one would believe this as its two nights in a row.

Did anyone else see this? Or seen anything like this?
All i know is that this was 100% not a plane or helicopter as neither can move at this speed. I am freaked out!
